    I am going to try my hand @ dry aging a small brisket point when I looked at the weight on the package it said 3.52 lbs.... I don't know if I'm having a brain fart or what but what weight scale is the .52? Grams? When I put ut ob my scale it is 3lb 6 oz. So the :52 has me scratching my head

    The .52 would be ounces which is 8.32 ounces.  Did you weight the meat out of the package?  If so I would guess that they packaged it and didn't figure anything for a "tare weight", so they charged you for the packaging.

    I'm not sure if there is any law that covers this, but I've noticed when I buy a large package of ground beef and divide it up, I always end up with less than they say I had, so I weighed the styrofoam tray once and that accounted for the additional weight.
